Great Tew Block moving

Ironstone for building & masonry projects

Great Tew Ironstone is a unique stone. Indeed, across the country, if the stone work is ironstone it is safe to assume that the raw material came from Great Tew Quarry.

Great Tew Ironstone can be supplied in block form or cut and finished to the most exacting standards by the expert masons of Building Stone.

Over many decades the Great Tew Estate has quarried Great Tew Ironstone for its own use. The quarry supplied stone for the building of the 17th century cottages and houses in Great Tew and it is possible that Ironstone has been quarried at Great Tew since the construction of the Roman settlement a mile to the south.

Today, Great Tew Ironstone is a unique stone used in renovation and restoration projects as well as new build developments throughout the heart of England. Great Tew Ironstone can be supplied in block form or cut and finished to meet our customers’ requirements using our recently acquired state of the art JCB Fantini Chainsaw.


The limestone supplied by JQG is simply just what my wife and I were after. Paul and his team couldn’t have been more accommodating with our enquiry, order and delivery. An absolute pleasure to deal with a can do company who are passionate about stone! We have just carried out renovations to our house and Paul was our immediate go to for our internal flooring and external paving. Thank you once again.
